Tent City and Anti-Gentrification March a Success

23 Jun

On June 22 victims of gentrification and the capitalist system met at City Hall to take a stand against the destruction of our communities. After several speeches, including a message from Derry city councillor and Irish Republican Gary Donnelly, people took to the streets. Intersections were blocked and traffic was stopped as economic disruption was the order of the day. The march ended in Victoria Park where food was served, discussions were held and tents were set up. Despite police and tornado warnings we intend to keep this community going for the next 9 days.
